Grants ranging between $10,000 and $40,000 to USA nonprofits for programs that improve healthcare delivery to adults with developmental disabilities. Preference may be given to organizations in the San Francisco Bay Area. An LOI must be submitted prior to a full application. Proposals must describe an explicit, identifiable need.
WITH Foundation was created to provide financial support to organizations that promote the establishment of comprehensive healthcare for adults with developmental disabilities that is designed to address their unique and fundamental needs. All applications should compliment this mission and demonstrate how they will accomplish this overarching goal.
Areas of Support:
All projects/programs must complement the mission of WITH Foundation.
Programs that improve delivery of healthcare to adult customers with developmental disabilities and include at least one of the following:
- Improve health practitioner competency throughout education and/or training programs
- Address the current inadequate reimbursement system
- Advance formal care coordination including the utilization of trained support personnel caregivers
- Increase public awareness regarding the inadequacies of developmentally disabled care in order to advance systemic change
- National efforts in digital health that support designers and developers to include the perspectives/experiences of the IDD community within the design process, in order to create better technology for all
- Social policy research
- Identify and overcome barriers to high-quality healthcare access.
While projects are of more interest to the Foundation, general operating expenses would be considered if the program is compelling and there is a sound plan to increase financial independence in the future. General operating support is only considered for applicants that have previously utilized project funding.

Grants are usually between $10,000 and $40,000.
Most grants are for one year. However, under special circumstances, a grant for up to three years might be considered if it met the following criteria:
- There is a specific reason why long-term funding is needed.
- This reason is not due to mismanaged finances or poor financial planning.
- An agreement is made whereby the grantseeker will submit regular evaluation reports which would be reviewed by the board to determine if the criteria had been met in order to release funds for subsequent years. These criteria would be agreed upon by both parties at the onset of the grant relationship.
It is also possible for the organization to apply for funding in consecutive years.
All applicants must have tax-exempt 501(c)(3) status as a nonprofit organization as defined by the Internal Revenue Service.
There are no restrictions based upon geography. While applications from the San Francisco Bay Area may be given preferential consideration, applications from other areas in the United States will not be excluded.
The Fund is not intended to cover:
- Specific therapies that are provided outside of a formal healthcare setting i.e. physical fitness and/or nutritional programs (“healthy lifestyle programs”)

The WITH Foundation has three grant cycles per year, two open grant cycles open to all eligible applicants and one Request For Proposal that is presented to the UCEDD/LEND network. Open grant cycles begin March 1 and November 1 of each year and the RFP opens July 1. Consideration is only given to projects that fit within the grant guidelines.
Applying during the open grant cycle is a two-tiered procedure. In order to save prospective applicants the time and effort involved with the preparation of a formal grant application, a letter of interest (LOI) is required. To submit an LOI during an open cycle, the first step is to create an account (if you do not already have one). The LOI is not a grant proposal, but simply a means to gather some basic information about the applying organization and to determine if a formal grant proposal is aligned with the funding guidelines. No other unsolicited information will be considered.
If an LOI is of interest, applicants will be invited to submit a full proposal. Even if an LOI is not a fit, each submission will be acknowledged.
Staff is available to better understand the funding guidelines and discuss project ideas. Especially for large grants requests, prior discussion with staff is encouraged.
